Ship – Summer Healthcare Internship Programme

Jark Healthcare is one of the leading providers of the healthcare workforce in the UK and one of the few nursing and care agencies on the National Framework Agreement, working in partnership with the NHS.
For the last 7 years we have operated a summer healthcare internship programme (SHIP) open to 2nd year and up UK and EU students of Nursing, Medicine, and all other Allied Healthcare professions (e.g. physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dentistry).

Selected candidates will be placed in various healthcare facilities across NI and the UK for a paid 8-to-10 weeks paid work placement as healthcare assistants, with slight variations in placement location and tasks depending on the student’s background and personal preferences.

Candidates must be very motivated to take part in an experience abroad, as well as have some relevant healthcare work experience (including compulsory practice included in their course or any volunteering experience) and a B1+ level of English.

For visa reasons only EU/EEA candidates can be considered at the moment. If you are a non-EU candidate but think you might be able to get a temporary student work permit, please get in touch and we will examine your situation together!
